The Blues & BBQ for Better Housing Block Party returns to Arvada CO on July 14, 2013. This fun family event is a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity, raising $20,000 in 2012.
Held in Olde Town Arvada, Grandview Street is closed to traffic and the party starts at noon, goes until 8 pm.
Hosted by The Duke Street Kings, see 18 hot local bands for ten bucks. All bands volunteer their time and talent. I don't see the lineup yet on the website, but I do know Austin Young & No Difference is scheduled to return, and if you've ever heard this kid play, you will want to be there just for that set, even if you can't make it to any others.
Last year we were thrilled to see Willie Houston at Blues & BBQ - known as 'Colorado's elder statesman of the blues', it was a thrill to hear him, and I hope his Delta style will be available again this year.
I wish I could endorse other bands, but I just don't know who they are yet.
Oh and yes - there's BBQ too - lots of vendors, including Olde Town local favs, so you won't go hungry or thirsty. I hope Still Smokin' will be their with their truck.
BTW - the sponsors are asking that dogs be left at home for the day. Please honor this request for safety reasons, it seems there are more and more dogs at every event, and crowded events like this one just don't seem like the best place to have them tag along.
Be sure to put Blues & BBQ on your calendar for July 14!
